Since 2008, the Park Ridge Wilderness Scouts and Princesses have donated over $14,000 to the Elementary Learning Foundation (ELF). This has all been done with proceeds from our annual Christmas tree sale. ELF’s mission is to raise money for Park Ridge and Niles schools and give it back in the form of grants that support innovative, imaginative, educational programs.
For the 2016/2017 school year ELF is implementing a number of projects through its grants. These grants are listed below. Additional information can also be found at http://www.district64elf.org/grants.html.
- Active Learning Environmental Makeover at Lincoln School
- 2nd Grade 21st Century Learning Environment at Washington School
- Kindergarten Ready Set Work at all Elementary Schools
- Portable PA System at Emerson School
- Early Childhood at Jefferson School
Saturday, January 28th is ELF’s big fund raiser and we encourage all to participate. It will be held at Café La Cave located at 2777 S Mannheim Road in Des Plaines, Illinois. The festivities start at 6:30 pm. It should be lots of fun! To sign-up for Casino Night please click on the following link.
